NBC Forced to Cancel ‘Slip ‘N Slide’ Show for Putrid Reason

YUCK!

Published

As a child, nothing could quite bring the sunny summer neighborhood together quite like a Slip ‘N Slide:  That magical length of wet, slippery plastic that we would run and dive onto, speeding across our yard or down a hill and into, hopefully, a nice, soft end.

Of course, as adults, the prospect isn’t quite as cheery.  The device looks more like a quick way to get to the ER than splashy, summertime fun.  After all, this is just a piece of wet plastic sitting atop whatever roots and rocks already exist underneath.

And don’t get me started on the friction burns.

But there is one Slip ‘N Slide fate worse than bumps and burns, and NBC found out about it the hard way.

Production on NBC’s upcoming competition show “Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide” was halted after more than three dozen crew members were sickened by an outbreak of “awful explosive diarrhea,” according to a report on Friday.

The sickening conditions left people “collapsing” on set and “being forced to run into port-o-potties,” a source with knowledge of the incident told TheWrap.

Filming of the new Bobby Moynihan– and Ron Funches-hosted program, in which competitors complete various challenges on the classic outdoor slide, has now been shut down indefinitely, according to the outlet.

NBC did suggest that they would be looking to complete the filming of the program, but there was no set timeline for the finale.

George Soros Drops $1M to Defund Police During Major Crimewave

Wow.

George Soros

If you were to ask around in the farther-flung corners of the conservative internet, you’d not find much high praise for George Soros. The liberal billionaire has been spending much of his time, (and wealth), bullying the sociopolitical system into leaning to the left, and he hasn’t been trying to hide it at all.  This has made him a bit of a boogeyman within conservative circles, and rightly so. His latest bit of “philanthropy” appears to fall right in line with his previous maneuvers. Liberal mega-donor George Soros has directed $1 million to an activist group attempting to defund the police as violent crime surges in major urban centers across the nation. Soros sent the million dollars via his Color Of Change PAC on May 14, according to Federal Election Commission files obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The organization describes itself as “the nation’s largest online racial justice organization” and actively engages in efforts to defund police departments such as spreading an online petition calling for “divesting from and dismantling the systems that unjustly harm Black people.” The group also backed a push by the Milwaukee City Council to defund the police. And they aren’t mincing their words. “Policing is a violent institution that must end,” the group’s president wrote in a statement supporting the move. “We imagine a country where there is enough money to educate our children, care for our sick and feed those who are financially unstable. Defunding the police allows for this vision.” The move comes amid a massive crime spike in liberal cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, and New York.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.
